Poinsettias

Make this easy poinsettia flower with your kids.



I love making this easy holiday poinsettia with my kids.  It's super easy and makes our room look so festive.

Materials:  
Large, medium and small petal templates, 
red, pink, white, and green construction paper,
brad, glitter (optional) , single hole punch tool

1. Make enough leaf templates for students to share.  I made the templates with tagboard or card stock.  The thick paper is easier to trace around and should last for several holiday seasons.


2. Students will choose to make a red, pink, or white poinsettia.

3. Each poinsettia needs 3-5 small, 3-5 medium, and 3-5 large petals of the chosen color. The flower also needs 3-5 large green petals. Students trace and cut out the leaves they need for their flowers.


4.    Punch a hole at the end of each petal.

5.   Put brad through each petal going from smallest to largest so the brad opening ends up at the back.
